Mart Stam
Mart Stam
Mart Stam estudiò dibujo en Amsterdam desde 1917 a 1919. y trabajò en una practica de arquuitectura hasta 1922.
Una vez mudado a Berlin conociò un buen nùmero de arquitectos y artistas de avanzada, incluyendo al constructivista ruso El Lizzistsky.
Mientras estaba en Alemania construyò un prototipo de silla cantilever hecha de caños de gas soldados y juntas de plomería. Llevò sus dibujos experimentales a un encuentro con arquitectos.
Su concepción revolucionaria inmediatamente inspirò a Ludwig Mies van der Rohea diseñar su propia versión, perfeccionàndola en 1930 con la silla BRNO.
Sin embargo fue la silla de Stam, con su estructura flexible y tubular la que le ganò la reputaciòn de ser uno de los grandes diseñadores del Siglo XX.
Mart Stam had studied drawing in Amsterdam from 1917 to 1919 and worked for an architecture practice until 1922. Upon moving to Berlin, he met a number of avant garde architects and artists including the Russian constructivist, El Lizzitsky. While in Berlin, Stam constructed a prototype of a cantilevered chair made of welded gas pipes and plumber's elbow joints and took his experimental drawings to a meeting of architects .
Stam's revolutionary concept immediately inspired Ludwig Mies van der Rohe to design his own version of the chair — and Mies produced an elegant and stylized version of the cantilevered chair in 1927, perfecting his design in 1930
with the Brno chair. However, it is Stam's cantilevered chair with its flexible tubular steel frame and radical new form that has won him a reputation as one of the great designers of the 20th century.
